Ever misplace your TV remote? We all have. Did you know that you might have a TV remote in your pocket or even in your hand right now? With SmartThings, you can use your phone to adjust the volume, change the channel, or even start the next episode of Game of Thrones.

Control your TV with SmartThings

Use SmartThings to turn your phone into a controller for your TV. 

Open the SmartThings app on your phone, and then tap Menu. Tap All devices, and then select your TV. An on-screen remote will appear in the app. The options available on the remote will vary depending on the TV.

The volume and channel controls work the same way they would on a normal TV remote. You also have access to Mute, Home, Back, and Guide. Use the arrows or the gray box at the bottom to navigate the Settings menu or apps. Tap anywhere in the box to make a selection.
